Applications open for Playwright/Playread at Actors’ Temple

The Actors’ Temple is offering a workshop open to both writers and actors who would like to develop their writing. The first step in this process is designed for writers who would like the opportunity to work through an area of text which they would like to develop. A section of your script will be read through and rehearsed by our trained actors and then performed in front of an invited audience with the opportunity for a Q&A, critical feedback & networking. 

They will select two playwrights to work with per session. Sessions will run on one Sunday each month (typically the last Sunday of every month).

The next PlayWright/PlayRead Workshop will be on 25 September at 10.00am -10.00pm aThe Actors’ Temple (13-14 Warren Street,  W1T 5LH).

How it works: The session will consist of three sections:

  1. A workshop with specifically chosen actors and a director to work on a particular character or section of the script
  2. A rehearsal of the section of the script you would like the actors to read in front of the audience  
  3. The rehearsed reading in front of an audience including an opportunity for constructive feedback and informal networking during the interval. 

Each writer will have approx 2 hours to workshop & rehearse their script with actors prior to the reading.
